ARLINGTON, Texas — The Texas Rangers keep making moves!

The Rangers have reportedly agreed on a deal with free agent pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, bolstering their starting rotation.

ESPN's Jeff Passan reports the deal is for two years, $34 million, and that  it includes a third-year vesting player option. Passan also reports that the Rangers will have to give up a third-round draft pick in order to complete the deal.

Eovaldi went 6-3 with a 3.87 ERA in 20 starts during the 2022 season with the Boston Red Sox. Over his career, he's 67-68 with a 4.16 ERA.

The 32-year-old has spent the most time in his career with the Red Sox after stints with Tampa Bay, New York Yankees, Miami and Los Angeles Dodgers. He was an All-Star selection in 2021 and played an integral role in the Red Sox winning a World Series title in 2018.

With this reported deal, the Rangers continue to bolster their starting pitching rotation. Earlier this offseason, the team signed Eovaldi's fellow free agent Jacob deGrom to a massive five-year, $185 million deal.

The Rangers' potential 2023 starting rotation now includes deGrom, Eovaldi, Martin Perez and Jon Gray.
